Performer Bio Synopsis

The Reedy Band was established in 2015 with the opening of Dr. Rick Reedy High School in Frisco, Texas. Our first students came to us from successful band programs at Cobb, Pioneer Heritage, and Griffin Middle Schools, as well as Frisco and Wakeland High Schools. The Reedy "Cluster" includes both Pearson Middle School, and Pioneer Heritage Middle School. The Reedy High School band is made of up of three concert bands, jazz band, color guard, as well as the Percussion Ensemble. In our inaugural year, our marching band received unanimous "Superior" First Division ratings as a UIL 4A Non-Varsity band. During the 2019 marching season, the Reedy Band was selected to compete at the UIL Area B Finals for the first time ever and placed 9th. The Reedy High School Marching Band is one of the largest and most active spirit and competition groups on campus. The marching band attends all varsity football games and pep rallies to lead the students in cheers and provide musical support. The Reedy Band also attends an annual slate of Texas UIL and independent marching competitions in DFW. The Reedy Percussion section is open to all percussionists (and select double reeds in the fall) who have successfully participated in a middle school band program.
